Avène Body Oil

If you had the chance to rifle through a French woman’s bathroom cabinet, you might be surprised to find this hydrating body oil in lieu of the heavy lotions we favor stateside. But we think you should take a cue from our sisters overseas. This fast-drying formula cures dryness, and it isn’t the least bit greasy. Plus, the clean, woodsy scent has the faintest whiff of pine—no wonder skincare-obsessed Parisians consider it a staple.

Best used after showering
Purchased

I finally gave in to all the dry skin advice in beauty articles that body oil would cure my chronic dry skin. The first time I tried this oil, I wasn't impressed. The floral smell was stronger then described and me self conscience. It didn't seem to absorb as quickly and didn't seem to help my dry skin so the bottle sat unused in my cabinet for bit. On a whim, I tried it again. Except this time I used it right after I got out of the shower and that's when the magic happened. It made my dry scratchy winter skin feel soft and lush. My skin will feel a little slick after application but not enough to effect your clothes.

Effective product, but odor not great
Purchased

I purchased this mainly because of the price, and for the price it is an excellent choice---but the odor is not one I love. I did know the odor was piney before I purchased the p;roduct, so I was prepared. It is smooth and provides a nice touch to wet skin---so it's a good product for the price. Just be aware, the scent is unusual.

Nice and moisturizing
Purchased

I wasn't too crazy about the smell - kind of a old lady smell, but it is very moisturizing. A little bit definitely goes a long way. Great size product for the price.

Not bad
Purchased

I bought this in hopes it would be like the L'occitance oil but it does not have the same consistency and I wasn't a fan of the smell either.

Avene Body Oil

Absolutely LOVE LOVE this body oil. I tend to have dry skin especially through the winter months and Avene Body Oil does the trick. The oil is not to thick and is quickly absorbed into the skin. I usually put it on before drying off in the shower. It makes your glisten and it smells wonderful. Everytime I put it on my husband tells me how he loves the smell. Will be buying this product AGAIN....

Works But
Purchased

...I don't care for the smell of this product! I'm getting used to it, (my dogs LOVE it) but I'll be looking for something commensurate that doesn't stink. The smell dissipates but not fast enough for me.

I liked it, but I prefer more natural look. This kind of made my face look dirty.

It gave me a nice glow but I didn't fully understand the reusable puff and how I could travel with it.

Love it
Purchased

This body oil does have a kind of "planty" scent so if that's something that turns you off with Aveda and brands that use a lot of natural extracts, you probably won't like it. I actually think the scent is kind of refreshing, but I might be weird. It's very moisturizing, soaks in fast, and the pump is great.

Not just for the ladies
Purchased

This is my second time purchasing this product. Having a fair complexion, this has been exceptionally beneficial in preventing my skin from appearing dry. Using it on damp skin results in smoother looking skin with a healthy appearance without looking slick. I've seen no impact/staining on clothing. The fragrance is pleasant but can be noticeable and compete with subtle colognes. However, not enough to prevent me from keeping a bottle in the shower. Highly recommended.
